Garage Sale Trail 2017

» Find your nearest sale


Get to know your neighbours and be part of the nation’s biggest ever weekend of garage sales this October.

Gympie Regional Council is bringing Garage Sale Trail to the local area on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October, 2017.

For sellers – it’s a free, fun and social way to declutter, find a home for your pre-loved stuff, meet local people and make some pocket money.

For shoppers – it’s a great way to grab a bargain, find something unique and shop sustainably.

Register your sale at garagesaletrail.com.au and get in early to receive a free seller pack!

Garage Sale Trail is a national, council-powered program that is about sustainability, community and fun.

The event aims to provide a platform for fundraising, reduce waste to landfill, enable community connections, inspire creativity and stimulate local economies.
